Nate celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 5th. Every time we'd ask him "when's your birthday?" he would answer, May five! haha. So cute! Time flies so fast, really! Wow, Acabelieveit!
Now, since I'm kuripot and I have bills to pay for now, I can't afford to go on leave, even for just a day. So instead of celebrating his birthday on a Thursday, I decided to celebrate it on a Saturday so I won't need to go leave at all and prepare for the simple celebration for the entire week.
Long story short, May 7th came, it was simple, it was tiresome, it was fun and it was memorable. Nate loves it every time someone sings "happy birthday" to him, and he's a happy camper the entire time.
My plan was, compared to last year where we celebrated his birthday in the church, this year, I wanted to invite the kids in the neighborhood to come over, as well as the kids in our church. I also asked for our Sunday School teacher to come and teach the children about Jesus and the bible before playing. And it happened as planned and I am so thankful that the word of God is preached to the kids. That's the main reason why I wanted to have a simple celebration (instead of just eat outside).

After dinner, we had a short meditation led by our church pastor, Ptr. Boni. We meditated on God's word, sang worship songs together and gave our birthday wishes to Nate. I also showed them (again) the video montage that I made for Nate's 2nd birthday, lol (proudmama, haha!).
